Service to Others

 You can help give families moments of togetherness by preparing and serving a meal at Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House. 

Together, We Can Solve Hunger!

 Volunteers are a vital part of the Freestore Foodbank’s strategic plan to provide 50 million meals by the year 2020.  Every time you volunteer, you will leave knowing that you have helped to provide Food, Connection and Hope for our neighbors in need.

Every Hour Makes a Difference

 Volunteering at Matthew 25 can be a great team-building activity, and is also very family friendly. A morning or afternoon’s work will typically produce enough finished materials to help hundreds of people in need in the U.S. and around the world.
